Handle with Care

Ceramics Museum Princessehof in Leeuwarden presents the exhibition Handle with Care through October 29, 2023.

This exhibition revolves around the hand and gestures - expressions of intimacy, compassion, silence, constraint, labor and celebration. The universal role of hands and fingers in the lives of humans and animals is captured in ceramics in this exhibition. Curator Wendy Gers selected 37 works around this theme. The works on display range from archaeological finds to the latest contemporary acquisitions, loans from up-and-coming artists and pearls from the Princessehof's depot. An eclectic collection from different times and regions, in which known and unknown makers have sometimes literally left their impressions in the clay.
